Some items came into my possessions due to certain circumstances. The owner of these items are doubtful. However, I am quite confident that the owner is a certain non-Muslim. If I return the items to him even secretly, then he will, sooner or later, come to know that I had them with me all this time. I will be exposed and disgraced.
Hence, I secretly sent him more than double the value of these items in cash in order to compensate. I did not inform him what this money is particularly for, or who I am.
Have I acted correctly? What is my position according to the Shariat?
